An IDF aircraft fired at least one missile at an open field in the northern Gaza Strip early Wednesday, shortly after Palestinians shot a homemade Kassam rocket at the Negev town of Sderot, the army said. Several sonic booms caused by Israeli warplanes also were heard in Gaza during the night.
The army said the airstrike targeted an empty field in northern Gaza used by Palestinian groups to launch the rockets.
There were no reports of damage or injuries from the Israeli airstrike or the rocket attack on the southern Israeli town.
